Hello there 🙂
I am not sure, but I am Here for the latest trend of pimped, feathered brows. Once upon a time, my brows were full and profuse and would have been perfect for the fluffy trend. Like most, however, I plucked them over massively in my teenage years. As a result, I have since tried to take full care of her again. While many of my joyful friends turned to powders, pomades, and pencils to get back in shape, I've struggled for years to find a product that wouldn't make my super dark brows look like they'd been stenciled – until now .
When brow lamination treatments peaked last year, brow trends turned away from all things big and bold and towards a softer, feathered look that turned out to be incredibly low maintenance. Just brush up and get started. Overjoyed, I tossed all of my brow products aside and got ready to take a new, laissez-faire approach to brow grooming. But it seems the world had other plans for our brows, and when the salons closed their doors we were forced to find alternatives at home. While many have invested in lamination kits for the home (I've tried and failed), others have set out to find the ultimate product that will make long-lasting, full, and fluffy brows effortless. Enter the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze Shaping Wax ($ 23).
When Brow Freeze hit my desk last month, I have to admit that I put it on a pile of new products without too much interest. New eyebrow waxes are popping up to take advantage of the lamination trend, but all of the products I tried turned out to be fiddly, time consuming, and messy. After a few weeks, however, I spotted some of my closest beauty editor friends who were sporting something like freshly laminated brows on their Instagram feeds. After reaching out to countless beauty fans to reveal their brow hacks, it turned out they all had the same secret.
Finally I dug out my own pot and tried it out. Unlike other waxes and fixatives, Brow Freeze does not require water. Instead, you just roll a spoolie into the product and work it into your brows from root to tip. Immediately I was shocked at how strong it was. The look I saw on Instagram looked soft and natural, but it works like some kind of magical brow glue. When the strands got stuck, I expected things to get crispy and white (my experience with waxing taught me that it usually does), but the moment never came.
At first glance, my brows looked so voluminous and fluffy that I felt a little uncomfortable. It didn't look like me in the mirror – my brows were just too good. I panicked a little assuming that once things are set I won't be able to break them down, but I was wrong again. As I ran the spoolie over my brow I realized that despite the hair I was feeling As if they were cemented, they were still very manageable. In fact, the entire process only took about 30 seconds, and my brows looked their best in years. Since I first swirled it, not a day has gone by without reaching for Brow Freeze, even if I'm not wearing any other makeup. In retrospect, I'm embarrassed that I didn't try earlier.
